“Mantra means anything that makes the mind steady. Whatever vibration makes the mind one-pointed and creates a sort of receptivity is a mantra.”
– Sri Swami Satchidananda
This 60-hour certification course offers an in-depth look at the power and practice of mantra and Naad Yoga. Participants will explore the different levels of listening, speech, chanting and the experience delivered through various mantras. They will learn how to integrate them into their own practice and how to share these practices with their students.
“Mantra” commonly refers to a word or phrase often repeated for self- motivation, or to express one’s basic beliefs. In the path of yoga, mantras are seen as words of power that hold energy, intention, and the promise of transformation. Mantra and listening practices are central to all yogic traditions. In Sanskrit man means mind and trang refers to a wave or projection. Therefore mantra is often described as a creative projection of the mind through sound.
